European Quartet One Melody

Jeseník Spa was the first hydrotherapeutic spa in the world. The spa has the local folk healer Vincenz Priessnitz to thank for its fame. He was dubbed the “water doctor” because he founded the first hydrotherapeutic institution in the world in Jeseník back in 1822. Thanks to this, Jeseník became renowned as the “cradle of contemporary balneology”.Visitors to Jeseník are patients suffering from disorders of the nervous system and autonomic nervous system, patients with illnesses of the respiratory system or with blood circulation disorders.
